Review by Joe Martin:
"So, the good news with FIFA '09 is that the game is going to be immediately familiar to anybody who has played some of the previous instalments. The other good news is that it isn't just a remake of last year's game as this time around there are actually enough new features to justify a new release.
The major feature for PC players this time is the introduction of a new control scheme designed around just using the mouse to control your players. The fact that football simulators like FIFA '09 are primarily targeted at console gamers and are best played with a gamepad is no secret. And FIFA '09 clearly has the Xbox 360 controller in mind based on the interface and innate device support, but it is nice to see some alternatives provided."
